We already know Chris Sale and Jose Abreu are among the very best players in baseball, but neither White Sox star has captured the highest American League awards yet.
Bovada’s betting lines reveal 2015 could be the year that changes all that.
Abreu, the reigning AL rookie of the year, is 4-to-1 to win the AL MVP this season, according to Bovada. He’s behind only Mike Trout, who’s listed at even money.
Sale, who finished third in Cy Young voting last year, is 5-to-1 to capture the AL Cy Young award. He’s looking up at only Felix Hernandez (13-to-5) and Corey Kluber (4-to-1).
Bovada is also offering a betting line for the league leader in home runs, with Giancarlo Stanton the favorite at 7-to-1. Abreu is on his heels at 10-to-1.
Also making an appearance in that bet is Kris Bryant at 25-to-1. Bryant, who led the minors with 43 homers last year and has cranked six more during spring training, isn’t even expected to make the roster for opening day.
